"Trey Berrick wasn’t just any guy. He was that guy. The guy your heart wanted, but your head knew was a bad idea. A very bad idea.”

With Wicked Hearts L.A. Cotton continues to amaze me. The love story of one of the youngest and definitely newest Stone-Prince family member brings us right back into the Wicked Bay world. Kiera is an easy lovable character, she’s fierce and fearless, she’s content, simple and complex at the same time. I love how the author let her grow through the story. Not only he

I received an ARC for an honest review.

Another great addition to the series. This group of friends are so supportive of each other and have great banter.

I liked Kiera and Trey and whilst it was a crooked road they eventually got to their HEA. Trey put himself under too much pressure to be the ideal son and Kiera felt out of place but together they were whole.

It was nice to see the rest of the gang and I loved seeing Kyle in his big brother role - made me smile.

Now what is going on with Summer an

I love the Wicked Bay series, their world is incredible to read about.
L.A Cotton has bought us the latest instalment from the Stone/Prince family and didn’t disappoint.

Wicked hearts had lots of drama and angst and had me flying through the pages.

Keira was a character I related to with straight away. She was sweet, simple and at times quite fiery.

Trey, god I wanted to smack him upside the head! Every time I thought he was going to let himself me happy... NOPE!! Both of them were trying to act

An edgy, angsty, addictive YA/NA crossover series from L. A. Cotton, author of the Chastity Falls series.

I love this YA/Crossover series, it's never without its drama's, family drama's, friend drama's and the up's and downs of young love.

This is Kiera and Trey's story.
If you haven't read any of the previous books I would advise starting this series from the beginning. There are a series of events that lead up to Trey and Kiera's story and by doing this you would also learn to appreciate this cl

I cannot believe we are at book six of the great series already, how I have enjoyed these books that the time and books are just flighting by. This book is about Kiera Lessinger’s the newly found sister to Kyle Stone, how is she adapting to the life of the Stone-Prices. The great thing about these books is if you have not read any you can start anywhere in the series but get the full effect I would suggest starting with book one. So you can read, breath and live the Stone-Prince family drama. Th ...more

I love this YA/NA series. L.A. Cotton has delivered another great read filled with angst and young love. Words cannot express how much I love this series. LA Cotton always knocks it out of the park with her books making her an instant 1-click author.

If you haven't read the other books in the series then I suggest you do so you can fully appreciate the relationships between all the characters.

This instalment is Keira and Trey's story. Keira is Kyle's half sister and is relatively new the Wicked B

I was so excited to start Wicked Hearts. I have wanted a story about Kiera and as well as one for Trey since we have been introduced to them in the previous books. I was more than excited when they were getting a book together.

Now here is the thing, while I really enjoyed this one a lot, I was in a sense let down by how their relationship and mistakes of the past played out. I wanted to know more of their pa

There's not many series that you can get to book six and still find something knew each time but this author always delivers.

From the moment we first met Keira I've had a soft spot for her. There is something in her personality that just calls to me, her spiky take no prisoners attitude is matched evenly with her vulnerability. Trey is the player the joker of the pack the one who's good for a laugh but nothing serious. I knew there was more to him and I was right he's a young man with hidden de

I'm both happy and sad right now. I loved getting Keira and Grey's story...finally! I was so upset for them. Lost in the idea and devastated by the reality before this book started. Reading their heartbreak in Wicked Surprise was painful even without knowing everything. Seeing their struggle in the background throughout this series was rough. So I'm glad we got our answers! I'm glad we got our happy! But my heart still hurts and it's not going away for awhile, LA Cotton set me up. She knows it. ...more

This is another excellent installment in the wonderful Wicked Bay Series by LA Cotton. I love all the characters that have come to life through these books, but I think Trey and Keira are some of my very favorites. This book made me tear up in frustration at times and smile in jubilation at others. This a quick and interesting read, with just enough angst and drama to pull you in and keep you entertained. 4 Stars!

Heartstrings are Pulled, Broken & Mended In This Wicked Romance!!💔😍💘A fabulous 4.5 star read 🌟

Keira is Kyle Stone's long lost unknown half sister. She's had a tough life. Their Mum is an addict & once keira's Dad died & Gentry Stone refused to let her see Kyle, her Mum fell back off of the wagon after trying to kill herself!!😔 This has always left Keira with an ingrained sense that she wasn't enough - she wasn't enough for her Mum to want to live for 😭💔

Kiera is straddling a life between two worlds. She's a fraud. She's the tough girl from Rotunda Heights; she's also Kyle Stone's little sister. That's Stone as in the Wicked Bay Stone-Princes. Raised by an addict mom in a rough area where money is scarce and safety is even more scarce, Kiera now finds herself surrounded by the rich, famous, and beautiful. She has a nice boyfriend. He's a little on the goofy side, maybe a little less ambitious than he should be but he's funny and more importantly ...more

There is a reason this series is one of my favourites and that’s because we are now 6 books in and each book is just as amazing as the next book and this one was no different.

As these characters had been read about in some of the previous books I was looking forward to this story to see how these two connected and how their story transpired.

This book was one of my favs of the series and I loved how this story was told we were in the present and in the past and it really brought this story togeth

Kiera Lessinger may be Kyle Prince’s sister, but she’s also the kid from the wrong side of Wicked Bay. She doesn’t quite fit in and often finds herself on the sidelines looking in. But, being a part of Wicked Bay also means finding a way to her future once she graduates from highschool. It’s a chance to escape Rotunda Heights. She may have fallen for Trey, ut she knows he is way out of her league and instead spends her time with Jack . . .who also finds himself on the outside looking in. She kno ...more

Okay so I'm late in the game (hangs head in shame) but I promise that I will go back and read the rest of the Wicked Bay novels as I fell in love with Kiera and Trey. From start to finish their love was undeniable, how they each held each other's stares being unable to do anything about it as Kiera was too young and pretty much it would be jail bait if Trey to pursue her the way he wanted. But nonetheless, they both knew they had too many obstacles in the way for them to be a couple. So they wen ...more

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book, given by the author.

Their love story was forbidden, they fought to stay away from one another, but sometimes fate has other plans.

Kiera has been through a lot more than any girl her age should have. And now everything has changed, she finds herself in a completely different world to what she is used to and it’s hard for her to find her place in it. She also has a super hard time trusting people, b

Kiera had never fitted in since she found out Kyle was her half sibling, as much as she tried it never worked, neither did her boyfriend but she was just waiting to leave to go to college, no one could find out about the boy who broke her heart.
Trey realised that Callie needed someone who could give her one hundred percent, which wasn’t him, but they worked for now. Deciding to go home, Trey forgot about the engagement party, she was going to be there, but she’d moved on and he assured himself h

Drama and humour..

This is a fabulous mix of second chance, friends to lovers, and taboo romance...Trey and Kiera are a match made in an alternative heaven...they clearly have feelings for each other, but they have both got insecurities, which amongst a whole host of other obstacles keeps them apart.

Once again the story is focused on the two MC but one of the things that I enjoy about this series is the fact that the whole crowd of previous protagonists and antagonists continue to feature in eac

We originally met Kyle in Wicked Lies and Kiera is the half sister he never knew about who is now living with them. Kiera is just trying to adapt to her new life as it couldn’t have more different from her childhood where she has always felt like she wasn’t enough, so she strives to fit in and find her place. She has a good group of friends and a boyfriend, but she has never forgotten the one boy she couldn’t have Trey.

Wicked Hearts: A Wicked Bay Novel (YA/NA crossover series)

Trey & Keira lovestory has heaps of angst, its highly addictive, romance & suspense seeping through the pages.

I have a love/hate relationship with these character's. I absolutely loved Kiera Lessinger & her fiery personality.
Trey Berrick I loved/hated him at the same time. I love his personality, however, his decision making skills could use some work. I love the relationships between the mc's and the supporting character's.

I,m so so happy that not only did Kiera get to tell her heartfelt story, but that I also got to see Trey unravel too.

This couple have such an undeniable chemistry from the off, but age, family & expectations have always worked against them. Past actions & regrets almost prove to be to much to swim through, but damn did I root for this man as I so wanted him to win his girl & make her happy.

Another brilliant story from L A Cotton in this series.. have loved every single one and Kiera and Trey's story is no exception !
As always plenty of angst and broken hearts along the way making for a real page turner. These characters just come alive in the hands of LA Cotton, you want to jump on a plane over to Wicked Bay and become their new best friend.. or girlfriend!!
These men sure do know how to claim their women !!

So.... I jumped into this series on this book. Having said that, I loved it. Even though I was not familiar with the prior books or characters, I didn't feel lost.

Kiera is a tough cookie. She grew up with a hard life. She is a sister to Stone, who is a character in a prior book (that I really need to go back and read). She never felt like she fit in, not with her mom, who had her own struggles, or with anyone in Wicked Bay. Trey is very complex. He tries to please everyone, but he is not perfec

This series just keeps getting better and better. This was Kyle's half sister Kiera's story and it did not disappoint! She was the outcast from Rotunda High, and is now at Wicked Bay High trying to make a new life for herself. We get some backstory into her past and find out why even though sparks flew years before between herself and Trey, they are both with different people now.

Trey could never forget the girl with the pink hair and tattoos. She left her mark and even though he knew he needed

I just love Kiera and Trey! Yeah they had their ups and downs. More downs than ups it seemed. But they also had their love for each other! These two have been in love for years. But Kiera's age and Trey's hang-ups have made it difficult for them to take it any further than a friendly relationship. They each fall into a "safe" relationship with other people. I liked Jack (but not for Kiera) and his laid back ways. I didn't like Callie at all. This book was a bit slow for me up until Trey stated h ...more

I loved this story and the entire series. Trey and Keira both still live each other, even if they never said it to the other. Trying to start away from each other prices harder to duo than they thought, and the chemistry is palpable. He is friends with her neither and was told to stay away from her the first time they met, he didn't listen. She doesn't feel like she did it out that anyone has ever wanted her. Trey has always seen her, and that is what makes his rejection so much harder to deal w ...more

This book was everything and more. It was heart ache and drama. It was anger and tears. It was an overwhelming sadness and it was an overwhelming happiness all rolled into one. It was forbidden and torturous but also sweet and the kind of feel good that gets you deep in your heart. I wasnt sure how I felt about Kiera until this book. I wasnt sure if I liked her but now ... I love her. Shes a part of the stone princes and shes forever sealed in my heart.

So this is actually the first book in this series that I have had the chance to read but that does not really matter because this worked well as a stand alone as well. We meet Kiera as she is finishing her Senior year of high school. At fifteen she fell in love with the older Trey yet they were unable to be together so instead each pretty much made some really bad decisions and tried to move on in their

This was another great book by L.A. Cotton! This book follows Kiera and Trey's love story!
They have quite the series of ups and downs and Kiera's lifestyle doesn't exactly help as she has been trying to fit into the lifestyle her Brother Kyle has grown up with. Kiera and Trey came in hot then sizzled right out, but every time they saw one another, the flame reignited. They both thought they shouldn't be with the other. Trey was Mavericks b
